• Along with our change in location, we also changed our name to Family Food Services Inc. to reflect our broader client base which now included picchild care centers and family child care programs, senior citizens, homeless shelters, Head Start programs and assisted living facilities.

  • Over one weekend in October of 2002 we moved into our current home just a few blocks down the road in Chelsea to the site of the former "Rita's Catering and Bakery". This facility, which is 6,700 square feet allows us to store our 12 delivery vehicles on-site and gives us the capacity to produce 8,500 meals each day for delivery to the greater Boston area.

Our 10,000 square ft. facility located in Chelsea currently produces, cooks, packages and delivers over 5,000 meals per day. Now we are prepared to add thousands of meals to service family child care.


Emily's Inc. was established in 1992 as Social Service Foods Inc. Our founder, William F. Restuccia, developed the company to serve healthy, nutritious and well-portioned meals to the children in the child care centers. Our first kitchen was in a church in Cambridge before it was re-located to 174 Portland Street in Boston. There, Social Service Foods Inc. prepared meals for child care programs, senior citizens, catered staff functions and board meetings, and operated an on-site cafeteria that prepared hot breakfast and lunch for 150 needy individuals each day.In 1999, Social Service Foods, Inc. outgrew its Portland Street home and moved into a 4,780 square foot commissary located on Arlington Street in Chelsea, MA.

Food service for the center based childcare industry has been around for a long time. In fact, longer than Emily's Inc. (Family Food Services) has been in business providing meals for child care centers and seniors and that has been over 16 years. In our 16+ years of preparing meals for the young and old alike, we have become more and more efficient and have grown each year.
